GV II

House. Initialled and dated " R L 1696 " (Richard Longbottom). Dressed gritstone, stone slate roof. 2 storeys with attic. 2-cell central lobby-entry plan, double-depth. 3-bay facade has doorway with unusual carved doorcase which has outer rusticated jambs with an inner eared architrave; the lintel is inscribed with the date. The face of the wall above the door is raised by a shallow projection ascending to the eaves and framing a 2-light window with an ogee surround with carved floret set in apex at lst-floor level. To either side double-chamfered mullioned-and-transomed cruciform windows of 4 lights to left (parlour) and 6 lights to right (hall) on both floors. Ground-floor dripmould with small scroll stops. Shaped gutter brackets. Coped gables with kneelers and acorn finials to eaves and apex. Central stack to ridge. Rear: outshut to rear of 2nd cell has quoins, plinth and stack. 2 lateral stacks. Altered windows in keeping. Left-hand return has double-chamfered mullioned- and-transomed window of 4 lights with 4-light chamfered mullioned window above. Cross-window at mezzanine level to light stairs. Right-hand return has almost central doorway with composite jambs and chamfered surround which rises to form a false ogee lintel. To left a 6-light C20 window, to right a 5-light double-chamfered mullioned window. Dripmould returned from front. lst-floor has 3-light and 4-light windows with almost square reveals. 2-light window to attic has arched lights. To right-hand end a lst-floor doorway with composite jambs, chamfered surround and lintel carved " I H S 1716 " (now altered to form a 2-light window), reached by a flight of 13 stone steps with a simple parapet to top landing.

Interior: largely altered mid C20. Steps lead down to the original cellar: this has a segmental-arched vault. The rear of the house contained an unheated back parlour in the north-west angle, and a kitchen at the north-east angle. The kitchen was heated by a stack, now largely rebuilt, on the north wall.

An interesting house which in its decorative detail attempts to combine classical features with the more local vernacular style.
